Rifle Paper Co. 558 W. New England Ave., Winter Park, 407-622-7679,

Rifle Paper Co. has been a hometown favorite since 2009, when Anna Bond and her husband, Nathan, launched their design studio out of a garage apartment. Rifle is now a thriving stationery business with international recognition, but it's nice to know we locals can stop by the tiny flagship shop in Hannibal Square to peruse the newest calendars, cards and paper goods, along with a smart selection of gifts by other makers.

Recipe tin with cards and dividers, $34

Truly special recipes deserve better than an email forward or a soulless computer-paper printout, and Rifle's floral-patterned tin is a worthy repository. Treat them right and start a tradition by recording all of your specialties – family or otherwise – on the included cards.
